    In a must-win game to keep their playoff hopes alive, Royal Challengers Bangalore trounced a lowly Delhi Daredevils by 5 wickets in New Delhi on Saturday. The stars of the night were skipper Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers, as they put on a partnership of 118 runs together. Both the batsmen scored respective fifties to save their team from elimination from the tournament.

    Virat took to social media and credited de Villiers for the win. In the post he mentioned that he enjoys batting with the Protean. He tweeted, “Have always loved batting with this guy. Makes things simpler for the person at the other end. Today was yet another special partnership. Glad to finish on a winning note. #DDvRCB #IPL2018 @ABdeVilliers17.”




    Right after the victory, during the post-match presentation, Kohli had also mentioned that it was an 'honour' to bat with ABD. "It’s an honour for me to bat with AB. We were looking to finish it with a few more overs to spare to help the net run rate, but the two points are very important,” he said.

    Bangalore chased down 187-run target with utmost ease, in just 19 overs. Kohli scored 70 from 40 balls, while ABD remained unbeaten on 72 from 37 balls. Earlier in the day, Delhi's Rishabh Pant continued his good form and slammed 61 runs from 34 balls.
